   I think #3 needs some clarification--Server push is not "infinite 
object length", but it *is* an unknown quantity of finite objects.

errors yes, end-of-object no.

   If it is always an error to end a connection in the middle of 
an object, then how does one "correctly" end a mulitpart server-push?
